The Department of Earth Sciences invites applications for three lectureship posts from 1st October 2019 in the areas of Climate Studies, Earth Resources and Sustainability, Geological Hazards, and Sedimentology. Applicants from those whose research will contribute to areas of strategic importance (e.g. REF impact) are particularly welcome. We are seeking to appoint outstanding individuals with academic standing, vision and proven expertise who will provide leadership in their field, develop world-class research programmes and contribute to advanced teaching and knowledge exchange activities.
The successful candidates will be expected to contribute to the advancement of knowledge by research and scholarship that is world-leading and meets the highest standards of excellence. They will also contribute to the teaching on undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses offered by the department, and engage in a range of knowledge transfer and public engagement activities.
UCL Earth Sciences is one of the oldest centres for earth and planetary sciences in the UK, situated in Bloomsbury in the heart of London and within minutes of the British Museum, the British Library and the Royal Institution. The Department is now housed in the recently refurbished Kathleen Lonsdale Building (inaugurated by Sir David Attenborough in April 2018). The completion of this £28M project means that we now offer staff and students opportunities to work in state-of-the-art research labs and teaching facilities.
